Japan manufacturers’ sentiment falls to 7-month low in Nov- Businesshala Tankan

    TOKYO, Nov 10 (Businesshala) - Japanese manufacturers' mood hit a
seven-month low in November amid ongoing supply shortages, while
sentiment in the services sector improved slightly as the
government eased coronavirus curbs, the Businesshala Tankan poll
showed.
    The Businesshala Tankan index readings are derived by subtracting
the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from
those who say they are good. A negative reading means that
pessimists outnumber optimists.
    Following is a table of indexes for key sectors and a
comparison with the Bank of Japan's quarterly tankan survey:
